Mirna Gallant, born and lived in Ethiopia for 12 years. In 1975 the family moves back to former Yugoslavia where her parents come from. She gets a degree in Horticulture and opens a flower shop.
In 1993 due to the war in Bosnia she moves to Fredericton to start a new life. Takes on various jobs and finally finds a job she loves…working with kids at an after school.
About 4-5 years ago her love for flowers and Africa take her on a journey into the art world where she takes art lessons in watercolour first and then in acrylics.
Today she is doing two of her favourite things working with kids and painting.
